I booked this hotel after a last minute decision to visit DC. I am officially a Pod hotel concert. I love this hotel. Very friendly staff, very clean and modern rooms and the location was perfect. As a solo female traveller I was a little nervous about walking around at night,

This hotel is located right across the street from a metro station (Chinatown/gallery, red line) in the heart of what's left of Chinatown in DC. It's very near the national portrait gallery. Honestly, I've stayed at regular hotels where the rooms were about the same size. The

“I truly cannot think of anything to improve my stay at Pod DC. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating. I have claustrophobic issues and Daniel the manager let me see a hotel room before we committed to checking in. And the room was perfect, with floor to ceiling

Does the hotel have valet parking?
Pod DC does not have valet parking, however there are plenty of parking options nearby. For the best price, we recommend a garage on E Street that will cost $25/night (3 blocks from the hotel). There are closer options, however they are a bit more expensive and can run from $35-$50/night depending on the day. Please visit our website and click the FAQ page for a link to our parking.

How is the bathroom setup for the Bunk Bed room? Does it offer privacy/a bathroom door?
Alexis, Thank you for your question! The bunk set-ups offer the same door that is in each of the other rooms. It's a frosted sliding type barn door. We look forward to seeing you soon. Regards, Jon Porcello Hotel Manager

"We were on the 10th floor and it was very quiet. We had a corner room and it had floor to ceiling windows - great views of DC."
"Go high and a side street room if you can. Street noise is an issue and height can only help"
"Get familiar with the thermostat as it can be tricky to reset. The higher up the better I suspect."
"Higher floor rooms have good views"
"Traveling with an infant? Bring your own pack and play, and let them know you need a room to accommodate it. Ours was perfect!"
